Hey guys, let’s talk about the KINGdom!
The term KINGdom comes from one of my good friends named Mickey. About six months back she called it the KING-dom.
You know, with KING in big capital letters.
The KINGdom was made for the food addicts out there. For the ones haunted by sugar demons, addicted to carbs and for people who simply can’t stop shoving harmful things into their face.
Eventually you start feeling bad about yourself. You go into a nosedive and spiral downward into an abyss of self-pity. You tell yourself you’re worthless. You’ll never get this done.
“How could I do this to myself?”
Let me tell you something. I’ve been there and done that. If you’re in my group, this is the type of people that you’ll be surrounded by. This is how we roll. This is how we get fit levels of body fat, and then maintain a goal weight range, even though we have all that bullshit going on in our mind.
My Eye Opening Vacation
I was on vacation just a couple of weeks back, and man was that place fancy! I hadn’t been on a long vacation like that in about a year in a half, and I simply gave in to the amenities offered to me. I was able to hold out for a good while, but eventually the sugar demons began calling my name. Initially, I controlled my urges well.
My worst offense was eating a waffle with a little bit of butter. I was hanging in there, but then I had an ice cream…and another…and another. I figured I might as well indulge myself while I was on vacation.
But, guess what? I didn’t let my little slip up keep me down! I didn’t let my guilt burden me. I had no regret. I had none of that weird self-pity, nasty, gross, total toilet feeling. I just felt physically bad, because I went off the rails.
However, I had my own group to come back to. I had all the tools at my disposal!
So, two or three days later, I shed the water weight. I dropped around 13 pounds! Mind you that a gallon of water weighs 8.3 pounds and I’d say most of the weight I gained was pure water weight. Packing on that type of weight is very easy for human beings. We could easily be carrying around an extra gallon or two of water.
So I worked hard and got that refined sugar poison out of my system. In no time flat, I was back at it again. I was ready to swear off cookie dough, ice cream, and all that jazz. But, of course, that’s easy for me to say now, but that’s only because I used the tools at my disposal. And one of the tools is the credo!
“Dream big, work hard, never quit! It’s never over, until we take our last breath, and it’s gonna happen”.
You might be asking yourself “where did this creed come from?”
I’ve read this before, and you probably have too. I believe in it, and I’ve seen it in action. The creed isn’t just a theory. If you dream big, you can expand beyond your limited thinking. I don’t care if it’s fitness, money, a career, family, travel, etc. etc. There are no limitations!
Set shit so high that your friends think you are a fuckin’ lunatic! Look at anybody that’s extraordinarily successful in the world, in any endeavor that you admire and respect. Of course, people thought they were crazy too. That’s because they’re not the norm. They don’t walk around with fear, anger, impatience, or frustration weighing them down.
No, they wanted to do something special. They wanted to do something bigger. These type of people don’t waste their time judging other people. They’re too busy working on the extraordinary things in their life to waste on trivial matters.
Personally, I never do any of the wild shit that I do to make you feel bad, look bad, or to puff up my ego. I know that if I do something extraordinary, it vibrates in my cells! It’s something that I call divine vibration. It allows me to speak, coach, inspire, and encourage from an entirely different level.
I can bring it to you with heat and passion. From an inside-out point of view, I’m not just saying shit. I’m feeling it! So, you have to dream big. Big dreams produce big action.
Here’s a saying that I quote constantly: impossible is more workable than easy.
How Disney World can teach us to dream big
Once you’ve committed to a goal, action will naturally follow. Once you have a plan of action you’ll be laser focused. That’s what dreaming big does. It provides you with no limitations. That’s why I love going to Disney World. The moment I walk into the park I feel the creativity of Walt Disney. I feel his vision and passion!
Walt Disney had a vision, and he was dreaming bigger than big. Disney teaches people how to dream big. If you’re willing to open your eyes while walking around the park, you might learn a few lessons.
If you want to learn how to run your own company, learn how to hire, how to keep a place clean, how to do customer service right, then pay attention to the way that Disney runs its parks. You might learn a thing or two. Personally, I love visiting Disney World and I get a boost every time I visit.
What the Credo truly stands for
In the end, the credo is all about community and working hard. Look at the most successful people in the world and you’ll identify a pattern of hard work and grit that propelled them to the top of the game. If you’re willing to work just as hard, if not harder, you’ll set yourself on a similar path.
